8/10 Very good

The area around the hotel is beautiful and secluded. Although clean, the rooms are a bit old and dingy. The worst part for me was the breakfast buffet with flies dead and alive on the food. I think they could work a little harder to cover the food. Other than that, service was great.

This is a 3 stars not more
1/10 workers/hotel employees speaks English. Even for emergency, the staff isn’t speaking English which was an issue for us. Rooms are old and they smell humidity. The toilet is cleaned per the employees, but everything is broken or isn’t working properly. Drinks and food are ok. At the price we paid, it was ok. But don’t spend to much, the place is outdated and for non Spanish speakers this is not an easy stay.

8/10 Very good

I would say the property is good for family the kids have a lot to do. Super nice with animals you could tell they take care of animals, you see monkeys,birds,they have a butterfly garden is great. They offer things to do like horse back riding, ATV’s, zip lining outside the hotel. The Japanese restaurant is Great!! My favorite. What the hotel need is to put more bars the lines are crazy to get one drink. Also they need more nightlife and the rooms a little more clean the bathrooms.

Upon arrival we room 505 was assigned to us. Infested with bugs and maintenance issues. Went to customer service who was very friendly and helpful. We were transferred to a beautiful upgraded suite over looking the ocean. I was very pleased with the resolution of our problem and the wonderful and understanding customer service manger. Thanks.

Do not waste your time here
Got to Barcelo Tambor and first impression was not good, I waited 1 hour to be checked in, but I thought this is not the end of the world I can manage to still have a good time, we got to the room and found the floors wet ,I thought it was condensation from the air, we set up the room and went to have lunch to come back fee hours later to a wet floor again, I called the front desk and they send a lady to dry the floor and another person to let me know the air had been fixed but the condensation still happening, I asked to have the room changed since all carpets were wet and they did, so I picked up the bags and moved to another building on the opposite side of the hotel, set up my bags again and went to enjoy the show to then come back and find no hot water, no towels and no phone to call the front desk, I got dressed and went back to the front desk to ask for the hot water to be fix only to find out there was not hot water on that building either so I was asked to move rooms again, I asked to talk to the manager but he was too busy to attend to me, so I went back to my room to wait to be changed again to another room in the same building that was wet witch I refused ,so they changed me to a building behind the reception and upgraded my room, I was recieved by a guard that said this happened several times today, on my way I talked to a lady that had rented over 10 rooms for a wedding and they all had the same problem. The hotel is in a rural área, no much to do around
